This unique text explores the patient-physician relationship, focusing on those relationships and societal problems that can have an impact on it. Writing for first- and second-year medical students, Drs. Mengel and Holleman describe the process of developing into a physician and how that affects the individual; the many cultural issues that can impact on the patient; and the current economic forces affecting the quality of health care. Students will benefit from the cogent clinical examples and cases that illustrate important points and the suggested supplementary readings.
